Is the check engine light coming on?

Have you checked the fuel pressure?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
no engine light and have no way of checking fuel pressure
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

The problem you are describing sounds very much like you have either a fuel pressure concern or possibly a restricted exhaust and with the number of miles you have on the truck one or both are possible. I would start first with having the fuel pressure tested while the problem is occurring. Fuel pressure can be checked with a full scan tool. Which engine do you have in your F 150?

5.4
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Normal fuel pressure on your F140 5.4 needs to be right at 55 to 60 PSI and if its dropping below 55 then you have either a weak fuel pump or a restricted fuel filter. Has the filter been serviced in the last 30,000 miles?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
